being old enough and positioned right at the time (london) i have witnessed the birth of heavy metal. used to see live regularly led zeppelin, deep purple, pink floyd, jeff beck, rory gallagher, motorhead, etc in the late 60s > 70s >... still my fav listening beside the grateful dead

what qualifies me as the deadbanger is the fact that im still a big motorhead fan, right now my fav among the living rock bands. saw them live many times. the best and the loudest rock band on this planet, still perfectly functional despite it all

We must be about the same age, as I also saw Deep Purple (Dagenham Roundhouse among others), Zep (Ally Pally 72), Sabs (before 1st album in Bishops Stortford ! and later), and while putting on gigs had Motorhead for an unforgettable evening.

However about that time a friend played LIve Dead to me and I moved on to West Coast music and rarely look back.

ally pally 72? i was there too. front, dead center, right on the fence, 5 feet from the stage

me and a few others didnt look back. being in front and standing, we didnt realise that everybody behind us has seated down on the floor and that we were obstructing the view for at least couple of hundred freaks. when the band came out, the booing started and the beer and coke cans were flying all around me. only then i looked back, realised whats happening and forced my way down to the incredibly tightly packed floor

good times, bad times

gotta look over ur shoulder occasionally

"gotta look over ur shoulder occasionally"

That's good advice right there. The kind that you might hear from your Grandpappy.
